  1. Start laptop
  2. When the laptops Logo page closes, start to press F8
  3. You should get a Windows Start screen
  4. If you get a Windows Logo page (the kind you normally get when Windows loads, then reset it and start again.
  5. On the Windows Start page select "Last known good configuration" and press enter twice
Hope that solves it for you =)

But my laptop even don't work in safe mode. Blue screen appears and computer restarts again . What to do??


Try running the last known good configuration.

Follow the steps below,

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.

My laptop rebooted itself for updates. However, the screen turns blue before it gets to the main screen. It says it shut down windows so it doesn't damage my computer. I don't know how to fix it if i can't...


Boot the laptop, and immediately after you see the DELL splash screen, start pressing F8. This will display a startup menu with a few different options. Choose the option that says "Last Known Good Configuration" - this will back out the last update changes that may have caused your problems. Good luck!!

My new lenova thinkpad t400 seems to be caught in a loop. I've taken the battery out and ctrl alt delete but still goes back to configuring updates: stage 3 of 3 screen and then says shutting down, but it...


Hello!
This is a tough one. I've seen this recently and had to just press and hold the power button to shut down. Not good!

I'm assuming you're using Windows of some sort since it shows "Stage 3 of 3" when it does updates during shut down.

What has happened is you downloaded some sort of "fix" from Microsoft and it's getting stuck while trying to install. I've had this happen and have never found a good solution for it.

1. Turn you computer off.
2. Turn your computer on
3. As soon as the power comes on, start pressing F8 repeatedly.
4. When you get a black and white menu, use your arrow keys to move up and down, select "Last Known Good Configuration" and press enter.

What the solution I've provided does is revert your computers software to a point in the past, hopefully just before you received the screwy update.

Good luck!

When ever i log on the computer says configuring update 3 of 3 0% complete do not shut down. Then it shuts down on it's own and keeps doing the same thing over and over.


Turn on the computer, and as soon as it it on, keep on tapping F8 key until you see a black screen with white text. Choose the Last Known Good Configuartion option.

Acer5920 stuck in configuring updates.


This is generally caused by bad blocks in the Master Boot Record(Table). The drive itself is probably not salvagable. You'll need a reputable reapir person to slave your drive to another system to get the data off.

Good Luck

no computer is trash when you are dealing with a software issue.

boot up and tap on the f8 key... when you get to that screen... choose safe mode... if it successfully boots.... go to start menu... and restart again... it should boot... if it wants to do the update let it.... if still nothing.... f8 again and choose last known good configuration

I have an acer aspire laptop, when i start it up its says configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete then it will shut down come back on say the same again and shut down again. it will keep on doing this


Maybe you could try the last known good configuration. When the laptop is starting up, wait until the acer screen disappears and then tap F8 on the keyboard before the windows screen comes up. You should get a black screen with some options that say safe mode. The fourth or so option on the list will be "Last Known Good Configuration". The computer should try and load windows. Hopefully that will restore the machine before the update. 

If it works it would be a good idea to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and fully update your laptop. This will download the update manually instead of doing it with automatic updates.
